How do I check my certificate was installed correctly?

To be sure that the certificate has been installed correctly and working properly, as well as that your customers are certain a secured connection is enabled and it covers data transmission through your website, you have the following indicators:

  • A padlock icon available in the URL bar.
  • No error messages/ warnings occurred when connecting through https://yourdomain.tld.
  • A Site Seal provided by the Certificate Authority installed and visible.

To have all these factors boosting up your visitors’ confidence you need to:

  • Install a validated certificate received from the Certificate Authority according to the instructions.
  • Check installation of the certificate using one of these checkers: sslchecker, certlogic, Comodo checker, SSLLabs.
  • Make sure that there is an automatic redirect from http://yourdomain.tld to https://yourdomain.tld (if needed).
  • Check that port 443 is open.
  • Avoid displaying any insecure content here.
  • Install a Site Seal following instructions.
